The flag of Brunei (Malay: Bendera Brunei / بنديرا بروني; Arabic: علم بروناي) is characterized by its striking yellow background, which represents the Sultan of Brunei and the country's monarchy. The flag features two diagonal stripes, one white and one black, cutting across the yellow field. The white and black stripes symbolize Brunei's chief ministers, known as the Pengiran Bendahara and the Pengiran Pemancha. Additionally, the national emblem appears at the center of the flag. The emblem overall consists of a parasol (ceremonial umbrella) inside a crescent moon flanked by two upturned hands, symbolizing the country's official recognition of Islam. This flag design reflects Brunei's deep-rooted heritage, cultural significance, and adherence to traditional Islamic values under the guidance of its monarchy and traditional leadership structures.

The emblem of Brunei is a rich and multifaceted symbol that encompasses several key elements representing the nation's heritage and values, all in red.. It features a small swallowtail flag and the royal parasol (ceremonial umbrella), both significant regalia of the Sultanate's monarchy, and signifies the monarchy's protection and authority. The wings within the emblem symbolize the protection of justice, tranquility, prosperity, and peace. Under these elements, the crescent signifies Islam, the state religion of Brunei, while the upturned hands on the sides emphasize the government's responsibility to safeguard the welfare and protection of its citizens and the government's duty to support and uphold the teachings of Islam. The emblem contains golden inscriptions in Arabic, with the national motto "Always in service with Allah's (God) guidance" on the crescent and the state's name, "Brunei Darussalam" (Brunei, the Abode of Peace), on the ribbon below the crescent. This emblem eloquently encapsulates Brunei's commitment to Islam, monarchy, justice, and the well-being of its people.
